Originally this resource was called "Ivor and the Two Bridges". Don't worry, that video is still here! Susannah is making space to add more pony whisper videos and pieces of writing here soon. Susannah is bridging Stephen Porges's Polyvagal Theory with Dawn Westcott's style of sensitively attuned pony whispering as she learns from and with them all.
"Ivor and the Two Bridges" is about how Susannah and her formerly wild Exmoor pony Ivor are exploring the dance between fear and courage, trust, safety and curiosity. This is story about Ivor, also called "shy boy" who is a wild born Exmoor Pony we adopted some years ago, along with his brothers, Ivanhoe, Kailash and Baluran.
"A wild and stormy night" is a piece of evocative writing about the recognition of mutual trust.
